San Antonio, Tex.- It was a good night to be a former Rockford IceHogs skater on the San Antonio Rampage. The trio of Mark Cullen, Bracken Kearns and Greg Rallo led a third period comeback for the Rampage as they knocked off the IceHogs 2-1 at the AT&T Center.

In the third period, two of the former IceHogs hooked up to burn Rockford and tie the game at 1-1.  Cullen found Kearns in the slot and the winger wristed his 11th goal of the season past Carter Hutton at 10:49.

A failed clear-out attempt by Philippe Paradis led to the Rampage’s go-ahead goal later in the third period. Scott Timmons knocked down Paradis’ clear out and Rallo’s second chance effortr off of a rebound beat Hutton five-hole at 13:31.

Ben Smith has made a living in front of opposing teams’ goalies this season and late in period one, the second-year winger cashed in again. Joe Lavin’s shot from the left point was redirected by Smith over
the shoulder of Dov Grumet-Morris at 19:44 of the first for a 1-0 Rockford lead. That was all Rockford could get past the Rampage backstop.

A night after coming back from a 1-0 third period deficit, the IceHogs coughed up a 1-0 lead of their own.  Hutton made 28 saves in the loss and Grumet-Morris turned away 26 Rockford shots.

The IceHogs were held without a power-play chance for the first time this season while holding the Rampage to 0-3.

Next Home Game:
Monday, Jan. 16 vs. Texas Stars. Game time is 1:05 p.m. The IceHogs return home for the first time in more than two weeks for the annual Martin Luther King Jr. matinee game to take on the Stars for the second and final time at the BMO Harris Bank Center. The first 1,500 kids 14 and under will pick up an IceHogs Drawstring Bag courtesy of Frito Lay.

For every goal that the Rockford IceHogs score in 2011-12, IceHogs head coach Ted Dent will make a donation to children’s cancer research. BMO Harris Bank will also make a donation for every goal to the “BMO Harris Bank Goals For Grades”
